Paul Stewart has called for new Tottenham Hotspur head coach Nuno Espirito Santo to boost his transfer budget by selling Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko.
While he has been keen to bolster his options ahead of the Premier League’s big kick-off, which is less than two weeks away, Nuno has been made to settle for the loan signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini and Bryan Gil joining from Sevilla in a swap deal which saw Erik Lamela head in the opposite direction.
Should Spurs look to sell Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko?
Former Spurs man Stewart believes Nuno should offload Moura and Sissoko before spending big money on a marquee signing.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “I think it’s time for both of them to go.
“When Moura is on form, he’s really good. But it’s far too infrequent.
“With Moussa, you get what you see. He is hardworking for 90 minutes but he’s not going to change the game for you or win you games.”
